Laurina Lyle, environmental education coordinator in the Center of Excellence for Field Biology, presented “CaPOW—Catfish Partners Out-of-Water” at the 32nd Annual Conference of North American Association for Environmental Education on Oct. 9, 2003, in Anchorage, Alaska. The conference drew more than 2,000 environmental educators and scientists from the U.S. and Canada. Based on a model developed by Lyle and others for the Catfish Out-of-Water City Arts Festival in Nashville, participants learned how to form educational partnerships between schools, non-profits, government agencies and universities. Lyle's presentation was peer selected to be one of the 100 presentations from a pool of more than 400 submissions. Catfish sculptures for the Catfish Out-of-Water City Arts Festival remain on display through October in Nashville.
